Please read the FAQs ( before posting. Thank you. :)

New Races:

Chaos Daemons
Chaos Renegades (The Lost and the Damned)
Grey Knights
Adeptus Mechanicus
Blood Angels
Space Wolves
Dark Angels

Expansions to the original 9 races:

Faction choices for:

Chaos Legions - 9 Original Traitor Legions and Renegades
Space Marines - Remaining 6 First Founding Legions, and 3 Second Founding Legions
Eldar - 6 most famous Craftworlds
Orks - The 6 major Clans
New units and characters for all the original races.

Installation Instructions:

1. Delete the codex folder and the code.module file in your Soulstorm directory.
2. Download both parts 1 and 2 of the Codex Base Code.
3. Extract both parts to your SS directory.
4. Download and extract Codex 3.5 to your Soulstorm directory.

5. Select “Dawn of War: Codex (3.5)” from the Game Manager.

There is a combiner module file for using in conjunction with the Tyranids (vs 0.51b) and the Black Templars (beta 5) mods included in the extracted folder,
but you will NEED these 2 great mods installed separately.

NOTE: The new races are not the same as other independently released versions, just to avoid confusion. These are the Codex versions, developed separately.

Hi Everyone!

Remember me? Well I hope you do anyway :)
Sorry I've been away for a while, personal and boring reasons, blah, blah, blah......

Now, for the good news, the mod isn't dead, and there will be a 3.6 release (at least), later in the year.
Now, 3.6 ain't going to be massive, maybe a couple of new units, but mainly focused on bug fixes and balance amendments (bomb squigs - I know, already done).

As for the future beyond that, not sure TBH. I don't have as much time to dedicate, but will try and focus on a few things:
Allies - Games Workshop has created a number of new "races", which are perfect for allied detachments.
Character - Making the existing races fit the fluff.
Fixes, and polishing - Deamons and Ad Mech need fleshing out etc.

Jamming more units in ain't a focus, but if somethings good, it'll go in. There are over a 1300 entities in the mod already, so only stuff that adds to the character of the race will be considered.

Need to see where the rest of the team is at, and what peeps are open to doing.....

So I have managed to download all the mod files.
But now, there's yet another problem...
I extracted all the main files and the 3.2 fix (not the badge and banner pack) to the SS folder. But when I open the game manager, I don't see the mod there.
I have also installed the Tyranid, BT and UA mods, and they work perfectly. But not this one.
Another question: will the new units in the recent WD updates appear in the mod?

if you go into the soulstorm folder, is there a file there called codex.module and a folder called codex?
Another answer: Hopefully in time. Not now.

Ah, damn! I totally didn't realise that. I had no idea why WinRAR extracted that module in the codex folder instead of the main SS folder.

they are the same as in vanilla soulstorm. The mod is not about changing the rules of the gameplay dude

I was merely asking a question not trying to make you change it, it is your mod you do what ever the hell you want with it, but don't come flaming me for asking a simple question. Good day.

I'd prefer it if you'd make it available via torrents - such a popular mod will never have its army of seeders depleted!
Your choice anyway.

Will the mod be ever available from hosting sites other than that racist Gamefront? And will the new flyers and daemons appear in the next version?

Because you didn't know the root of the problem. It's not that. It's because Gamefront blocks all IPs from our country - everytime anyone from Vietnam tries to download anything, it displays a 403 Forbidden error message.
And you should do that to YOUR own mod, too.

Lord_Cylarne Jul 29 2012, 3:17am replied:

Are you telling me you are using Firefox/Google Chrome right now on your computer?

Why is it that Game Front blocks all IP rights to YOUR country? What did you guys ever do to Gamefront? This does not make any sense...

4 other fellows (excluding the two other stubborn folks) replied something like this what you said and all four fellow members of MOD DB had the exact same issue you had except they didn't really find offense to my replies as I tried to help them...

Anyways, they have indeed replied "thank you your suggestion worked" and stuff like that, all because they used Internet Explorer at the time and they even admitted to using it. + rumors going on about how Internet Explorer is not compatible with Game Front.

Right this is not my mod, I dunno what I'm doing here... but if you have indeed tried Game Front again with the suggestions said from me to you, I will indeed plan on making a sixth mirror for the Grand Release just in case Game Front goes bad. ;)

Well, yes, I tried both FF and GC. And neither one worked.
And if I use proxies, it always ends midway through the download with a timeout, and I always have to start the whole thing again. And encounter the same problem again, again, and again,...
As for the IP block, right, it makes no sense. Some websites just like to block our country...

I guess I might have to pass this.

BTW, does moddb have any rules on size upload limit. I can see mods that are over 1.5gb (i.e: Crossfire)and it's not like you can't upload the mod to Moddb in pieces. I hope that 3.3 will be downloadable from moddb.
